Electronic transport properties of single C60 molecules and device applications
C60 molecules have become increasingly important during the last decade concerning both their basic physical and chemical properties as well as potential applications. Explorations of C60 based nanodevices have been performed recently based on the unique properties of C60 molecules. In this paper, the transport properties of C60 single molecules in different tunneling junction configurations are reported and a summary of the theoretical and experimental development of C60 based molecular devices is presented and discussed.
